"The live concert special's restoration has been sourced from the 35mm internegative and will be presented in both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos sound. The Dolby Vision laser projection system delivers astonishing brightness, incomparable contrast, and captivating color that more closely matches what the human eye can see.

Through 2019 technology, the audience is whisked back to 1968. The 4K restoration beautifully captures and recreates this historic event, creating a truly unique and immersive experience that fans won't be able to get anywhere else.

The film centers around the original lineup of THE ROLLING STONES -- Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Charlie Watts and Billy Wyman -- who serve as the show's hosts and featured attraction.

It stars the band performing fan favorite classics like "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and "You Can't Always Get What You Want", as well as extraordinary live performances by THE WHO, JETHRO TULL, and more.

This performance marks the first musical concert in which John Lennon performed before an audience outside THE BEATLES, as part of supergroup THE DIRTY MAC, which also included music legends Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and Mitch Mitchell.

"The Rolling Stone Rock And Roll Circus" is also the only time Tony Iommi of BLACK SABBATH performed with JETHRO TULL, and the last time Brian Jones would perform with THE ROLLING STONES in front of an audience.

Iommi joined JETHRO TULL in December 1968 after leaving EARTH, his pre-BLACK SABBATH band with Geezer Butler, Bill Ward and Ozzy Osbourne. After performing with JETHRO TULL at "The Rolling Stones Rock And Roll Circus", Iommi quickly came back to EARTH."
